The Little Singers at the Wooden Cross pay homage to Notre-Dame
St. Peter’s Cathedral. Described as “ambassadors of France” with “crystalline voices”, the Little Singers at the Wooden Cross are among the most accomplished boys’ choirs in the world, renowned for their openness and precision. The choir school has been in residence in Autun (Burgundy) since 2014, under the direction of Arnaud Riffet. It continues the work of its predecessors, including the founder Paul Berthier who, when it was created in 1907, offered an exclusively religious repertoire. Since the 1960s, the choir school has been open to so-called popular music, collaborating regularly with variety artists. This artistic evolution allows the Little Singers to reach a wider audience and to obtain an unfailing notoriety everywhere.
The Montpellier public will undoubtedly be numerous to listen to the little singers, back on the roads of France on Sunday at the cathedral with a program on the theme “Paris-Notre Dame”. A vibrant tribute to Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The choir will perform great classics of sacred music such as Schubert’s Ave Maria, Franck’s Panis angelicus or Pergolese’s Stabat Mater and French songs such as “Sous le ciel de Paris” or “À Paris”.
# Sunday May 15 at 4 p.m., Saint-Pierre Cathedral, rue Saint-Pierre 34000 Montpellier. Price: €25 adult; €21 per person for group reservations; €8 for children under 18. Reservations recommended on www.pccb.fr.

Run in the vineyards

Throughout its 10 km, the “Ronde” judiciously combines asphalt, dirt roads and stony crossings in an alternation of scents and varied colors. Without forgetting, of course, its specificity: its many small ribs which give it a toboggan profile.
